This is very suspicious behavior of a windows process. Spybot, Spysweeper, and Spyware doctor don't report anything about it.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

tcpsvcs.exe is a part of Microsoft Windows networking components. This essential system process is initiated when the computer uses special TCP/IP networking services such as DHCP, Simple TCP and print services. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

The Spy Bot database currently registers tcpsvcs.exe to Microsoft.

This is part of Microsoft Windows.

Thank you for your reply. I recognize these facts about tcpsvcs.exe. I just think it is fishy that this process should always use 50% of the cpu. I'll look into printing and whatever else may use that process.
